Big Men vs. Little Ones

Monday, October 12th, 2020

“The danger which troubled my husband was that war might be started not so much by the big men as by the little ones. While big men know the needs for self-control and restraint—little men are sometimes moved more by fear and pride. If only in the future the big men can continue to make the little ones sit down and talk, before they start to fight.”

~ Former First Lady Jackie Kennedy writing to Soviet Prime Minister Nikita Khrushchev on December 1st 1963, one year after the Cuban Missile Crisis and less than a month after her husband’s assassination.
